Mass for organ op. 24
Close the window
Written gradually between 2000 and 2002, this Mass which duration is 16 mn, is composed of 4 parts:
Entry, Offertory, Communion, Exit .
It is a concert piece which can also be played during the liturgy.
The Entry invites believers to the gathering in a cheerful atmosphere, sustained by a fluid and monothematic writing.
The Offertory is a soft meditation on the teaching of God. After this meditation, a more dramatic central part takes place, describing Man in front of death. The Offertory is concluded in a peaceful climate.
The Communion is a serene and meditative piece based on the intimacy between the Lord and us.It is composed of very soft chords, on which appears a thema played with "jeux de gambe " and "voix celeste" .
The Exit is written in the spirit of a virtuoso tocatta .It is built on a very lively melodic motive presented in the introduction of this movement. Full of energy, it illustrates the joy of Man, who benefits from the teaching of God to become better.
